Poland      2011

From Thursday 17th – Sunday 20th February, 16 senior history students accompanied by their teachers Ms. Redmond and Ms. Whyte undertook a trip to Krakow in Poland. As well as visiting the concentration camp at Auschwitz I and Auschwitz II Birkenau, students were taken on a walking tour of the old city of Krakow, Wawel Castle, the Jewish Quarter, Schlindler’s Factory and Wieliczka Salt Mines. Other activities enjoyed by the students were Fantasy Bowling, shopping at Galeria Krakowska and Aquapark Wodny  It is hoped that this trip has furthered the students understanding of history and in particular their study of the Holocaust.
